New, 18 comments

Just in case there were some worries that Seattle Sounders FC 2 would have trouble adjusting to the USL, they answered any of those concerns with a resounding 4-2 win over defending champions Sacramento Republic on Saturday. The match had a little bit of something for everyone, from great tifo, wonderful atmosphere and tons of really impressive goals.

All four of S2's goals were highlight-reel worthy, with Pablo Rossi's free kick and Victor Mansaray's assist being the particularly standout moments.
